SEAN MARCELLIN INTERVIEW
The first of several blockbuster summer interviews. We begin in grand fashion
with the greatest player in CASC history. Through 3 seasons in the CASC league,
Sean Marcellin has won 1 league championship, 2 scoring titles, 2 best offensive
player awards and 1 league MVP award.
After playing 2 seasons with the 4Aces, Sean has found his niche with the
Inverness Pub Renegades, playing alongside his good friend "the Disciple", to
form one of the best offensive duos in the league. The Renegades are 32-5-5
(.821 w%) since the Seanster came aboard the Renegades in the summer of 1999.
Sean was a major force in the Concordia Ball Hockey League playoffs, propelling
the Gades to a 2-0 series sweep in the league final over the My-T-Fines, who
had won the championship for 5 consecutive seasons.
Sean played brilliantly in the 1999-2000 CASC season, especially after the
Xmas break. The Renegades have won 12 consecutive games going into the
2000/2001 CASC season. Sean finished second in scoring in the 1999/2000 regular
season and first in the all important playoffs.
Sean is a great player and a great team leader, who knows what it takes to
win. Sean analyzes ball hockey like nobody else can. This future CASC hall of
